    I'm sorry, but naming a second gen item "Series 1" is just plain stupid. Here in New Zealand, most people don't realise that Series 1 is a new watch. So when a buyer asks a seller "is this an S1 or S2", the seller incorrectly calls it a Series 1 thinking that is the first series (understandably).

    Heck I think a large proportion of buyers don't really understand it either.

    Always ask for the model number...

    I don't think Apple cares what the secondhand market does...

    Some members even on Macrumors don't even know what Series 1 or Series 2 is. I refer to the first Apple Watch as Gen 1 and the new Apple Watch as Series 1 or Series 2.
